What is STEAM?

STEAM education is a growing force in today’s world, both in the classroom and industry. STEAM is a an interdisciplinary approach to teaching science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. Through STEAM students use authentic, real-world problems and construct creative and innovative solutions.


What is the competition all about? Why?

Creating excitement around STEAM and providing students at this age level with an opportunity to use the scientific method, inquiry and the engineering design process to solve a real-world challenge in an exciting and competitive environment.

Create team building for students by submitting one mixed team of students from grades four to six. Each team must have 4 students, along with  a teacher to accompany the team, and parents will be allowed to come and watch. At this time we are only allowing schools to submit ONE team. However, if there is still room after the cut off date we will allow schools to bring two teams.

If your school is interested in sending a student team with a sponsor teacher, please click the link below and fill out the form as soon as possible as it will be first come first serve. All submissions must be in by October 20th.

You do not need to have a team organized at this point. At the start of November all registered teams will receive a “team registration” form. Your schools finalized teams must be submitted by December 1, 2018. Once your team has been submitted, you will be sent this years challenge.

At the start of November, we will let you know if your school has been chosen and provide you with more information regarding the challenge that will be given. If you have any questions, please email us at donahue@rundle.ab.ca.
